Storytelling with Art, Kids ages 6-10 years old, Joyful Arts Studio

Storytelling with Art, Kids ages 6-10 years old, Joyful Arts Studio

Wednesdays in June * 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
June 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th.
Pick one or all of the class dates for your children to attend.
We will be doing completely different projects in each class. 
There will be a guest storyteller at the beginning of each class.
I’ve selected very animated storytellers!
When the storyteller has finished the story we will work on “projects” relating to the story.
Your child will be prompted with questions and asked to respond by creating a work of art.
We will be drawing, using watercolors, colored pencils, and perhaps acrylics.
These classes will be taught at my home under my tents.
We will be walking our farm and perhaps having a few scavenger hunts too. 
If it rains we will be in my home studio.
Please dress your child accordingly for outdoor play and apply bug spray before coming.
Directions to my home will be emailed with your receipt.

StoryWalk® Sundays-May 2022, The Institute

StoryWalk® Sundays-May 2022, The Institute

Sunday May 8th, 2022 * 1:30 PM – 3:00 PM
Our series of StoryWalk® Sunday adventures for kids continues in May.
The story posted on the StoryWalk® trail at Pine Hill Park will change monthly, and plans call for a special event to accompany each one on the second Sunday of each month.
May’s StoryWalk® Sunday is the perfect way to celebrate Mother’s Day!
Kids will join a guided walk along the story trail as they read the book, then make a special craft project to take home—and enjoy a campfire and yummy s’mores!
May’s storybook is “My Busy Green Garden” by Terry Pierce, a perfect choice as the season of gardens begins.
This charming book is a lyrical tribute to the bugs, bees, and birds that make a garden such a busy place.
More garden visitors appear on with each page, and all the while the “surprise”―a chrysalis―changes unnoticed until, on the last page, a butterfly emerges and flies away across the garden’s well-tended borders.
A lovely and lively portrait of backyard nature, which is also a gentle meditation on the rewards of paying attention.
Richly colored illustrations by Carol Schwartz bring the story to life. A chipmunk hides on every page to divert and engage young readers.
The event is FREE, but pre-registration is required by May 2. To register, email to: or call 717-762-0373. Limited to 20 children. 
Children in grades K–5 may be dropped off and picked up at 3 p.m. All families are welcome, but activities are geared for preschool and elementary age kids.
The book for June is “And Then Summer Comes” by Tom Brenner.    
Current Covid safety guidelines are being followed.
